Skip to comments.Black Activist to Trayvon's Parents: 'Get Off the Stage' and Let Us Politicize His Death
Posted on 04/14/2012 5:34:30 PM PDT by hope
A well-known, mainstream media-vetted college professor named Dr. Boyce Watkins states that its time for Trayvon Martins parents to step to the side, out of an apparent fear that being honest could negatively affect the race-baiting political agenda that Obama allies like Al Sharpton have carefully crafted.
Dr. Watkins stark admonishment, Get her off the stage right now, came in a recent blog post that shows the goal of the politicization of the Martin shooting is not truth or justice.
Who is Dr. Boyce Watkins? Hes a professor at Syracuse University and his website shows that hes been a frequent guest on cable news shows, including CNNs Anderson Cooper 360 and MSNBCs Keith Olbermann. He is also a frequent speaker on black issues, and his site shows his speeches have earned high praise from well-known leaders of the resentment-driven civil rights movement, including Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Michael Eric Dyson.

“Which begs the question: disastrous to what?”
I hate to be a prig, but it’s a pet peeve of mine. “Begging the question” has nothing to do with raising a question. It’s a logical fallacy similar to circular reasoning.
No shortage of carrion feeders, apparently.
Here’s how he polishes his head:
Resist we much!
Being thrown under the bus is known to hurt. In this case, the bus has foam wheels?
ha! they seem to know instinctively that that 15 minutes of fame doesn’t last as long as it used to.
The New BlacKKK Pampers are on the move!
It's a pet peeve of mine too.
The correct phrase in this case would be "raising the question," not "begging the question."
But I guess some talking heads think "begging the question" sounds better.
One talking head who seems to have learned the distinction is, suprisingly, Sean Hannity.
I always thought that the phrase “begging the question” was to pose a question that should have been asked but wasn’t?
I will check it out, thanks.
Quite the guy!!!
I’ll bet all the tea in China that the vaunted and esteemed black pamper thug, his royal high-ass, Dr. Boyce Watkins, will never, ever show his over-fed fat face on a battlefield when the bullets start flying.
Just read this clown’s bio and typically: angry, race-obsessed, affirmative action jackson, all conservatives/moderates are “racist” It’s everybody else’s fault for failure, his and others.
“Watkins has an on-going feud with Bill O’Reilly from Fox News. Watkins referred to Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity as “UnAmerican borderline Klansmen who graduated from the Rush Limbaugh School of Arrogant Self-righteousness”. During one CNN episode, after Bill O’Reilly made controversial statements about African Americans during his visit to Sylvia’s Restaurant in Harlem, Watkins referred to Juan Williams as “Bill O’Reilly’s happy little Negro”, in reference to Williams’ insistence that O’Reilly did nothing wrong.
In response, Williams wrote a scathing piece about Watkins in Time Magazine. O’Reilly spent a week on his show calling for Watkins to be fired from his post at Syracuse University. Watkins referred to Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh as “The Axis of Ignorance” for what Watkins believed to be racist attacks against the Black community.”
It begs the question: Does anybody care?
Thanks for posting that. I did a lot of clicking for usage and definitions and dang, the other interesting items that popped up 'were something else'. I finally wound up at a Trigonometry website I bookmarked -- and a few other sites for my Reference Folders.
Personally my biggest pet peeve is seeing 'alot' being used by FReepers. No such word exists so the spell-check feature isn't broke. It should be two words 'a lot'. There is the word 'allot' but that means an entirely different thing than 'many'. Another peeve is 'irregardless', and, 'its' vs 'it's'. (though that error can just be a typo in some cases)
Anywho, your post continues to confirm that FReepers are the smartest group of people who are walking God's green earth. Pick a subject and there'll be FReepers who are experts on it.
So thanks again ;-)
